. mayor, thank you so much for being on the show. >> thank you, luke. >> obviously, you've been very outspoken about how the sequester could have the severe impact on budgets for cities around the country. talk about that a little bit. we're only six days away. are you surprised by the lack of action here in washington on the fiscal cliff considering the dire implications for a lot of budgets in cities around america? >> actually, look, i am surprised. been around the block just a couple times. i've seen different things in the past, but this is very serious business, and apparently some members of congress just don't get it. the -- you can call it whatever you want to call it, but certainly fiscal is in front of it and it's not good. taxes going up for all americans, not a good thing. significant, possibly devastating budget cuts coming down to certainly state and local governments, not a good thing. and so this seemingly bad game of chicken, you know, this is not some schoolyard game here. this is about people's lives, it's about their livelihoods, it's about the future of cities,

is luke russert. >> how did this happen? >> it is fascinating. >> i'll give you the rundown. he is announced his plan b on tuesday. >> it was met with scepticism among conservative members of the gop conference. we are going to make sure there will be no defense cuts. we are going to offer over $200 billion in spending cuts for you to vote for this deal. this deal would have raised taxes for those making $1 million or above. it would have cut meals on wheels in order to pay down the deficit as well as make sure that the defense cuts would not go into effect and all of that was not good enough for the house republican conference tonight. it is really quite extraordinary when you think of governing that a deal like that, that is so much in favor of the party was outwardly rejected by the conference. >> we seem to have cop flikting leaks in their meeting tonight. we have mark levin saying it was threats and intimidation. we had congressman laturret saying no, and he gave up. what i heard was that he walked ip there and was calm and somber and was going to lose power because of this
's luke russert. >> good day. happy monday. >> thank you, luke. it's an exciting time on capitol hill my friend. i want to focus first on the gop. is the party coming together, coalescing around something, anything, relating to the fiscal cliff? >> well, i think they're coalescing around anything it's for speaker boehner to continue the negotiations and not give a single inch. the gop has done very well over the last few years is in the negotiations with president obama. they've held a hard line to the very end including during the debt limit where john boehner is allowed to say he got 98% of what he wanted. what you have to look for is the splinter that tom cole started last week, heard mr. chris toll say about how the president has an effective bully pulpit he can go around the country and say 98% of americans with a tax cut under my plan, trying to save it for the rich. republicans are coalescing around, if anything, is this idea that in order for the president to move on entitlements, they got to hold this hard line on the bush tax cuts for 250 or above. they don't want any deal that
of it. >> joining us now from capitol hill is a stage of congress nbc's luke russert, the man -- >> oh, my,, alex wagner, how are you? >> i'm good. how are you, luke? what is going on? tell us what this -- where are we? give us a road map here, because those of us on the outside looking up to capitol hill for some explanation are flummexed at best. the amendment to plan b, the cantor addendum, are we any closer to an actual deal? >> no one necessarily knows for sure, alex, but what i can tell you is i spoke to a number of members last night who are sort of establishment republicans, and they said, look, we don't necessarily know what exactly the speaker is doing unless this is some sort of a large plan that he and obama have together so that he gets to be able to show the more conservative members of his congress that he is doing all he can to prevent some sort of large scale deal in a would have a massive tax increase from happening. something happened on monday that we don't know about. if you read the newspaper articles, if you talk to people, it seemed like the two sides were close
if and when we hear at 9news now should air interviews from the young survivors luke santana's story is just too riveting not to share with you. jim axelrod talks to him and his family. >> reporter: last friday began as a normal day for luke santana and his third grade classmates at sandy hook elementary. but things got scary pretty quickly. >> there were about to announce something on the speaker and we heard gunshots. >> reporter: on the other side of the building, the shooter was beginning his rampage. luke's teacher tried to protect her kids. so you're in the classroom. and miss mckenzie is -- is she calm? is she excited? how was she? >> she was crying. >> reporter: miss mckenzie was crying. >> yeah. >> reporter: he says it must have been pretty scary. >> yeah but then like -- our next door teacher said to come to her classroom. >> reporter: so you all went in there? >> yeah because probably the gunman was going to come in our classroom. >> reporter: fortunately for luke and his classmates, the gunman never made it to their classroom. but even as they were ushered to safety at a nearby f
and luke russert is tracking developments at capitol hill and nbc news senior political editor mark murray is here to break it down for us from the washington bureau. we will start with kristen. last we heard, kristen welker, the president came out to report that he is modestly optimistic. has the rhetoric changed at all today? >> reporter: it has changed a little bit. the president is still modestly optimistic, but i just spoke with a democratic source who tells me at this hour a deal is looking doubtful. of course, we want to underscore the fact that these negotiations are very fluid so that characterization could change at any moment, but it seems as though the discussions going on behind the scenes right now have yet to bear fruit and right now we do have the focus on the senate. majority leader reid and mitch mcconnell trying to hammer out a deal that would, to some extent extend the bush-era tax cuts for those making $250,000 although we might see that number go up to 400,000, 500,000 if there is some type of a deal. the president has called on a deal to extend unemployment insurance
behind the scenes. we have correspondents tracking everything for you. we have luke, luke, i will start with you this hour. the senate officially reconvenes tomorrow afternoon. i assume that there's a lot of closed door talks going on right now. is that true? what can you tell us? >> reporter: that is true, staff from harry reed and mitch mcconnell have been negotiating through the daout the day and in picked up. we have heard that both sides are not budgeting. but we don't know, things can change at any moment. if we have to gauge how to talks have gone so far from the conversations we have had here around capitol hill, they have not been too good at the moment. all that being said though, craig, there's a lot that can happen over the next 48 hours. the deal obviously is to try to have something on the floor that can pass the house of representatives by new year's eve. that is why it's so difficult, craig. you have mitch mcconnell and harry reed trying to get something passed. so there's a lot of moving parts. this is not a really easy road ever. so far, things are not overly optimisti
it starts. >> joining me now from the capitol dome, nbc's luke russert. i don't know, i think that was what we call officially laying the smack down over there at the business roundtable. i was really surprised that the president went out there on the debt ceiling debate which is something that he put in the initial package that tim it geithner took to the hill and seemed to be an anath matteau those in the gop. he seems to be saying look, we're not going to get this deal done without the debt ceiling in the package. >> it was fascinating, alex. so much has changed from 2011 when we heard from republicans that the boehner rule, i. efrmgts any extension of the debt limit must be matched by matching spending cuts the norm from now on. seems president obama does not want to play that game as he said. walking away from the press conference today withes the gop leadership on capitol hill, a x alex, they're still engaging in the trench warfare. i asked speaker boehner about the $250,000 bush tax cuts, all the polling shows the country will think republicans are to blame if we go over the fiscal
joining us now to explain exactly where we stand is the sage of capitol hill himself, nbc's luke russert. oh, luke, coming in on the -- what should be your day off. please do explain to us this mess that's happening on capitol hill. where are we right now? >> it's quite a mess. obviously we've heard all those words, joy. the negotiations are fluid. it's $450,000 up from $250,000. also included in that is the extension of unemployment benefits. they're trying to figure out right now what is the hold-up to this possible deal is how -- whether or not they would pay for this see quester with some revenue or some other way. aside from how the deal is being shaped up right now, you're starting to hear some real anger on the left. tom hashingen, the senator from iowa, went to the senate floor and said this was a bad deal that no deal would be better than this deal, and i'm -- from a conversation i've had way few house liberals, they feel the same way. they feel that what's happening rain as the president is giving too much to republicans by going up to that $450,000 number that we should go ove
moments that left us starstruck and speechless in 2012. >>> good day. i'm luke russert. live in washington, d.c. in for andrea this afternoon is the calm before the economic storm white house officials and congressional leaders have kept quiet. ahead of the pivotal round table discussions we all hope can produce some kind of plan to prevent a fiscal cliff dive in the new year. you guessed it. another day without a deal means more losses on wall street. look at those numbers will. 68 down for the dow. joining for the daily fix, nbc white house correspondent peter alexander. nbc's kelly o'donnell live on capitol hill. and jonathan capeheart. peter, let me start with you. there's this meeting at 3:00 p.m. at the white house between the president and congress allege leaders. any optimism there? there's some -- little bit of a trickle of maybe some sort of compromise deal with rates starting at 400,000 instead of 2 r50. how is the white house feeling about this meting coming up at 3:00? is this more important show? >> at the white house at least from the conversations we have had with aides and
us, the dynamic duo, the silver fox and mr. boatshoe. nbc's mike viqueira and luke russert. gentlemen, thanks for being here. our cnbc colleague john harwood is reporting that there will be no vote in the house tonight, and according to his sources, the u.s. will go over the fiscal cliff. what's your reaction to that? have you heard that -- >> we can confirm that. >> i love john harwood, but luke and i have been reporting the same thing, jonathan, so there. >> okay. so we're going over the cliff? >> apparently. that's the bad news. the good news is, the parameters of a deal are definitely there. as you described, jonathan, the sticking point remains this so-called trigger, the sequester. remember, they agreed upon it last summer in july and august of 2011 when they came to that big debt ceiling deal. if there were no decision on how to cut government spending by now, these draconian cuts, indiscriminate across the board to defense half of it, $500 billion in domestic programs, the other half of it, the other $500 billion would go into effect. and now some want to have that delayed. th
